FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. (WTVQ) – Contractors will begin reconstruction of the KY 211-US 60 intersection at Salt Lick in Bath County this week.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the work, part of an $800,000 Kentucky Transportation Cabinet highway safety improvement project, will shift the KY 211 intersection at US 60 in Salt Lick eastward several hundred feet, creating a new intersection and closing the existing one.
Beginning Tuesday, Aug. 14, contractors will place work zone signs along the project area on both US 60 and KY 211, and will begin construction.
Drivers will encounter daily lane closures on US 60 through Salt Lick, with traffic flagged in one lane, about 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Drivers should expect heavy traffic and delays through the area until mid-October.
The project is being done under a $788,645.61 low-bid Transportation Cabinet contract awarded to the Walker Company of Kentucky Inc.
Road work schedules are subject to change depending on weather conditions. Drivers are asked to heed all warning signs, slow down in work zones and remain aware of workers and construction equipment when traveling.
